Digs

We are updating BAS’s “Find a Dig” section with new information and resources for the Summer 2022 dig season. Check back in January 2022 for more news and updates!

Participating on an archaeological excavation is a unique and exciting way to experience history firsthand. For almost four decades, BAS has been connecting volunteers with opportunities to participate in some of the most exciting archaeological excavations in the Middle East. A wide variety of people take part in our featured digs, and individuals of many different ages, backgrounds, and cultures have come together to share the thrill of discovery.

Dozens of archaeological digs in Israel, Jordan, and elsewhere are looking for volunteers to help them excavate history. Whether you’re interested in the worlds of Kings David and Solomon, want to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and the apostles, or work in an ancient Phoenician city, we’ve got an archaeological dig for you. For each dig, we provide an in-depth description including location, historical and biblical significance, and the goals for the upcoming season. You can also learn all about the dig directors and professors who will lead your summer adventure.

Please note that the Biblical Archaeology Society is not affiliated with any excavation. For questions concerning a particular excavation, please use the contact information provided for each dig.
